8:13 pm
that line to the north parrell to the path of nearby interstate 80. along that route, new bart stations could be added in san pablo here near the richmond hilltop shopping centers... further north in pinole... and there could even be service all the way to hercules... if not further... now, none of this is even close to being a done deal. i spoke with a bart spokeperson today who said that this is just one of many ideas and projects the transit agency is considering. there are no artist renderings, no engineering plans... at this point this is only an idea. it's not,
8:14 pm
however, a new idea, this has been explored before but never followed through on. if the bart board does decide to finally move forward with extending service to the north it would be a long, long process. the transit agency would have to secure funding, acquire land to build the new rail lines and stations, engineer and design the extension and then the project would have to survice years worth of studies and environmental reviews before construction could begin in the newsroom, charles clifford kron 4 news. mom, i invited justin over for lunch.
